8 Views of the Blues

About 8 Views of the Blues

In this eight-part class, we'll look at eight different blues compositions of mine – all very different in style or mood/feeling – that I have recorded over time on six of my CDs. We will dig deep into the various types of chord structures and harmonization that make them work, along with the various kinds of melodies and rhythms too, and how it all works together. We'll also talk about different approaches to improvisation, depending on the sound and feeling of the tune. PDFs will also be given to each student of the music, chords/scales etc. There will be time for questions on all topics in each class. There is a strong focus here on solo guitar playing, but ALL of the music and the topics covered also directly apply to ensemble settings as well.

This class is limited to 25 students.
